COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is made in the pumpkin beer tradition, except instead of pumpkins we used yams, and lots of them! A big Belgian-style brown ale of 10% ABV, this one is bringing pumpkin beers (or yam beers) into new territory.

This beer from a bottle and the pour was dark brown with some moderate off white head. Sweet malty flavors and caramel. Can taste the sweet yam flavor. Alcohol pretty well hidden. Pretty good beer.

Pours a two finger cream head that fades quickly to a ring leaving traces of lace. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Cloudy brown/amber color with a ton of yeast left in bottle. Nose is maple syrup. Flavor is sweet maple syrup, malts, spices, hints of yam and alcohol. Not cloying. Pricey at $12.45 for a 750ml bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA.

750ml bpttle. Pours a deep red, thin head. Aroma is incredible. Spicy pumpkin, clove, cinnamon, sweet malts, slight roast, brown sugar, nutmeg. Mild spicy taste. the yams really come through. Sweet candy sugar? Hides the ABV very well. A great winter sipper if you ask me and one of the top pumpkin beers around.

Bottle shared from Waylo, thanks Bra! Poured a pale yam/orange brown with tan head. Good carbonation, slight spice and herb with malts and some grain sweetness. Different and enjoyable, I would take this over other pumpkin beers I have had.

Defreni (2919) - Husum, DENMARK - APR 9, 2010
Flaske: Rødbrun klar øl med et hurtigt forsvindende skumhoved. Duft af krydderier og en smule ahorn. Smagen er kold domineret af sødme fra ahorn siruppen, men som øllen varmes op kan krydderierne tydeligt smages, henad dansk gløgg. Ok øl og fint udført men en tand for sød.

Pours amber with a rich beige head and a strong vegetable aroma. There is a smooth brown ale flavor with some carbonation and a little spice. The flavor is not raunchy as in some of the other vegetable/herb beers.
